Abstract

This study focuses on students’ voices on the use of Powtoon as a tool to optimize their skills in designing presentation. It investigates the implementation of Powtoon to design presentation and students’ responses on its implementation, especially the challenges that they face on the process. It is a case study that takes the data from three sources: observation, students’ interview, and questionnaire. The subjects of the study are lecturers and students taking part in two ESP classes. The implementation of Powtoon in learning process took 21 days consisting of one-week introduction to Powtoon features and two weeks of students’ designing presentation. The findings reveal that students give various responses toward Powtoon’s application. Some positive responses toward the application were given by the students who admitted that Powtoon offers advanced features of design such as various animation, music, and stop-motion. However, limited duration of displaying presentation which only provides five minutes and some technical issues such as internet connection makes it difficult for the students to obtain the optimal result of their presentation design. Furthermore, this study suggests that the role of lecturer is vital in minimizing the possible troubles by guiding, monitoring, correcting, and evaluating the whole process.
